NEW MOON IN AQUARIUS

The week began with Mercury in Aquarius meeting the Sun which marks the half way point of its retrograde cycle. Mercury’s inferior conjunction with the Sun can represent a time of illumination and breakthroughs. You may be able to get back to an idea that started to emerge in mid-January or at least gain some traction with your thinking. Stay aligned with what your intuition is telling you.

Mercury in Aquarius is also applying to square Mars in Taurus, exact on Wednesday. The square between Mercury rx and Mars can bring arguments or tense situations to surface. Mercury square Mars can also be associated with rash thinking or jumping to conclusion too quickly. You may want things to happen faster than they can or be caught between what you want to do, versus what is possible which can feel frustrating. Much of the astrology of this whole year is about applying the right kind of pressure for things to evolve while also being aware of the breaking point. We also have to keep in mind that Mercury is still retrograde until the 20th.

The New Moon in Aquarius takes place on Thursday for a total of six planets transiting in Aquarius. The New Moon is a time of inception and with six planets in Aquarius, there is a lot of momentum available, especially in connection with the house where Aquarius sits in your chart. Just keep in mind that it will take time and probably some mental gymnastic to get where you want to go. Be open to changing your perception. You may also feel like you need more space than usual to process your thoughts and do your own thing, just don’t shut down people entirely as we truly need each other more than ever in order to create smaller networks of people who can provide each other with different services. We won’t be able to depend on the big corporation monopolizing the world right now and keep our autonomy simultaneously. Lets support the people as much as we can.

Venus conjunct Jupiter on Thursday morning which could help smooth out recent tensions you may have experienced. The conjunction of Venus and Jupiter can be harmonizing and bring the optimism we need to believe that things will all work out in the end. The Moon enters Pisces on Friday and could even magnify the conjunction of the two benefic planets, bringing some smooth sailing into the weekend.

WEEK OF JUNE 24th, 2019


Happy Monday,

We begin the week with the last residues of the Moon in Pisces clouding our thoughts and creating a lack of groundedness. It will get better as the week progress but today (Monday) will be characterized by a certain lack of focus or direction. It could be a bit more difficult to keep your momentum going as we are still swimming in this weekend’s fog and rêveries. There is a lot of creativity and ideas floating around but it could be difficult to get real traction going to begin the week.

The sign of Cancer being ruled by the Moon means that this time of year is influenced by the ebb and flow of our moods, our energy level rising and falling like the tides of the Ocean.

The Moon enters Aries late Monday evening(22:38 EDT) signalling the last quarter Moon and giving us a little bit more Fire to work with. Tuesday morning could see you take stock of everything that still needs to be accomplished, making you feel somewhat insecure about the amount of work needed to get there.

Wednesday morning, the Moon in Aries will basically square all of the planets on on the Capricorn/Cancer axis prompting us to really take stock of where we are at.

By mid-week, there could still be a lack of groundedness or direction but reality’s requirements will prompt us to take concrete steps regardless. Pushed by deadlines and responsibilities, time is of the essence and it might feel like time is slipping out of your hands.

Wednesday evening (20:19EDT), Mercury leaves the sign of Cancer and enters the sign of Leo fuelling the Fires of our ambitions: With Mercury entering Leo our thoughts and ideas will get bigger and bolder inflating expectations. It is important to understand motivations right now as Mercury will turn retrograde in just a few weeks, prompting us to revisit some of what is being implemented right now.

Thursday, the Moon enters Taurus at 9:33am EDT anchoring us in our material reality. Thursday and Friday brings a focus on security and comfort:

Feeding your body and choosing the right ingredients could become more important. Food in general could occupy more of your consciousness wether you are planning a picnic with friends, tending your garden or selecting premium ingredients that will bring maximum health to your body. Food can be a source of pleasure and vitality right now and we might be more inclined to want to share a meal with friends and loved ones.

Friday and Saturday will be good for tackling our immediate surrounding, finishing projects around the house, spending time outside.

Saturday evening, the Moon enters Gemini, highlighting Mercury’s recent ingress in the sign of Leo.

Even though next weekend is characterized by the dark of the Moon (a time of rest before the new lunar month begins on July 2nd) anticipation of Summer’s pleasures could be bubbling just under the surface.

We could feel more inclined to go out, socialize and enjoy ourselves with the Moon in Gemini buzzing in the sky and the sweetness of these long Summer nights.

Have a fantastic week!
